Elemental archons are big, nasty elementals that form when a powerful mortal's souls goes to the wrong place. No, I don't mean hell. When they somehow end up in an elemental plane, that's just not a sustainable situation. The soul twists the elements around it, struggling to get free, and the plane eventually has enough and an "immune system" response of sorts ejects the soul and whatever mass it can exert control over. The result is an elemental archon.
This encounter features an earth archon and a couple of earthy genie types teaming up to stop corrupt merchants from using a canyon pass. Earth archons are melee bruisers who can eat the weapons used to attack them. They're as smart a dumb goat and as strong as six giants tied to the same stick.
